  • As of October 2017, some 65,427 projects LEED were registered.

Contribution to LEED

Developed by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED is a green building rating system, which rates buildings of all types (residential, commercial, new and renewed). Based on the number of points achieved, a project then receives one of four LEED rating levels: Certified, Silver, Gold or Platinum. Products (like Caesarstone quartz slabs) can contribute points to a project based on different parameters.
